Armagnac, Nebbiolo

Although Armagnac is the oldest brandy distilled in France it has taken a back row seat to its more famous cousin Cognac. Not to be confused with Cognac (to the North of Bordeaux,) Armagnac lies between the Adour and Garonne rivers in the foothills of the Pyrenees.

Armagnac was never produced in the same vast quantities that Cognac has been produced and as such, was and continues to be produced by mainly smaller, family-owned producers rather than the ‘big players’ in Cognac.

There are ten different grape varieties used in the production of Armagnac, but four grape varieties in particular provide the backbone for the majority of Armagnacs. Always blended, the four main grape varieties are Baco 22A, Colombard, Folle Blanche and Ugni Blanc.

United Cellars import a wide range of Armagnacs from key producers such as Delord, Castarede, Comte de Lamaestre, Maison Gélas and many more!
Whilst it is the first to flower, Nebbiolo is the last to ripen, which means it is susceptible not only to spring frosts but also early autumn frosts. It requires good drainage and will sulk in the rain, meaning the growing regions it does best in have all their rainfall in the winter and have mostly dry spring, summer and autumn seasons. The one viticultural godsend of this fickle variety is in its thick skins, which are very disease resistant later in the season.

Found historically in Barolo and Barbaresco, with new world plantings in Australia and Okanagan Valley showing the diversity of style this variety can produce.
